$500 or below mixer/interface suggestions

Now that I actually have some money saved up I'm looking for an upgrade from my current set up which is a Behringer UMC202HD and a FetHead Phantom to cut down down on preamp noise. What are some good mixers or interfaces for $500 or less? Or should I have something like a seperate preamp and A/D converter? I'm assuming that would cost a lot more for good quality gear.

What are your input needs?
What are your output needs?
What type of connection? (Thunderbolt? FW? USB? PCIe?)
Do you need 5-pin MIDI?
Do you need digital connections?

Look at Focusrite and MOTU and pick an audio interface that fits your needs. You do not need a mixer, its redundant and just add noise to your signal chain!!
